As the lyrics go in “I Been ’Buked” — the opening section of Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece, “Revelations” — “There is trouble all over this world.” Don’t we know it. Last week after Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater abruptly ended its tour and sent its dancers home, Danica Paulos — who creates content on Instagram for the group — asked her fellow company members if they were, she said, “down to create some positivity and some inspiration.”
Miranda Quinn (Baltimore, MD) trained in various genres of dance from the ages of two to 18 at Mid-Atlantic Center for the Performing Arts under the artistic direction of Shannon Torres. Quinn recently graduated from The Juilliard School while under the newly appointed direction of Alicia Graf Mack. Her attendance at the school was made possible by the Jerome L. Greene Fellowship. She has had the privilege to work in creation processes with Austin McCormick, Aszure Barton, Katarzyna Skarpetowska, Roy Assaf, and Stephanie Batten Bland. She has also had the opportunity to perform repertory of Nacho Duato, Merce Cunningham, and Alejandro Cerrudo. This is Ms. Quinn’s first time dancing with the Company and she is beyond thrilled and honored to become part of the Ailey family and legacy.
